After Jefferson Airplane split up she published solo albums and formed even more popular Jefferson Starship. During 1978 Jefferson Starship's tour in Europe, Slick's alcoholism became a problem for the band and she quit the band. She was admitted to rehab once during 1970's and once in 1990's.

Slick has had trouble with the law several times due to her drastic acts under the influence.
Style: Grace was the epitome of the strong sexual flower power woman of the late 60's and early 70's. Her style consisted all the key pieces of the hippie movement with colourful oriental influenced tunics, plunging neck lines, fringes and wild long hair. Her style evolved from 60's two piece tunic suits to openly sexual plunging neck lines and wild fringed outfits. She wasn't afraid to say aloud what she wanted and she wasn't afraid to look like she wanted.

Leather pants

Icon: Leather pants

Style: Leather pants create many images to mind always from Bavarian mens pants to rebellious but practical motorcycle clothing to skin tight sexy rock gods and goddesses. In the 70's punk and 80's metal and hard rock scene leather pants were compulsory. They gave rough edge to other wise quite feminine looking men in bands like Mötley Crüe and other hand leather pants gave masculine edge to the ladies of 80's rock. Leather pants sre not be the most comfortable clothing since they make always your pins sweat or shiver with cold, but they never ever lack rebel or sexy feel. Leather pants have found their way to high street fashion stores during last years, but still they have that very sinful feel to them.
